question

is this a solid state drive?
Asked by: HQ G.
No less than 5 people said this was not a solid state drive even though the product description says SSD and the specs say that it is a solid state drive, AND the last time I bought a WD 4TB passport drive that was NOT a solid state drive, the cost was about $100, so looks like there are some serious QC issues with these answers!!

Can I connect this drive to my router and use it with multiple Macs simultaneously, read and write?
Asked by: Greg
I can't imagine that this drive has the built-in intelligence to act as Network Attached Storage. Input from multiple sources would require firmware to route source information and prevent collisions.
